Flip Who?

Finally! Yes FINALLY! We got to Flipdaddy's in Mariemont!
We had driven by quite a few times but it was usually right after we had eaten somewhere else...this time we were in the vicinity and hungry- SUCCESS! It was a Sunday and probably around 11:30am or so - pretty busy!

Who doesn't love Underdog? The wall is dedicated to underdogs in history - pretty fun stuff. 

Larry got the Asian Fusion Burger: Teriyaki sauce, grilled pineapple, red and yellow peppers and lettuce situated atop our proprietary beef blend. ($8.99) He's a sucker for pineapple so I knew that's what he'd order. And he definitely liked it! The fries were good too - a nice seasoning on them - some were crispy and some were bendable - just the way I like em!

I went for the El Paso: Topped with roasted red peppers, freshly made corn salsa, lettuce, queso cheese and piquant chipotle mayonnaise. ($8.99) Again - happy customer (see below for more details). I also went with onion rings - they were delicious and HUGE! Neither of us were incredibly starving so we had some fries & rings leftover...but they were very good.

I was also surprised to find out they have a Brunch menu called Kegs & Eggs. It's shown above and looked pretty enticing as well. But - I had to have a burger before I tried anything else!

Why Should You Go? Well I decided to hold the real review of the burger for this area because it's the main reason I went. It is a pretty damn good burger - definitely tasted like someone made the patty (i.e. not frozen). Although it wasn't a very large patty in itself - the really great toppings made it very very filling. I love the uniqueness of the toppings and the pre-defined combinations they have put together. If I want to eat a hamburger and really taste the cow - then I go to Terry's. But more often than not - I'd rather go some place like Flipdaddy's where the toppings are unique and fun and it's a bit more convenient to get in and out any old time I'm hungry.

All in all - we both really liked Flipdaddy's and it really was for the toppings. I can get a simple burger I love just down the street at Quatman's but when you want something a little more complicated - this is a great spot!

Also - the service was really good for as busy as they were. They were a bit stunned this day by the amount of traffic for a Sunday morning and a few folks were bitchy with them. I thought the team took it in stride and did a great job. It was a little slow - but completely understandable.
